Women Are Less Principled Than Men – Roissy/Heartiste
First click on the link above and read that post. Roissy/Heartiste often has some insightful posts that describe societal and sociological implications of the natures of men and women. Unfortunately the comments devolve very quickly. His post deserves to be explored from a Christian/Complmentarian point of view.
I suppose that most women will find the Roissy/Heartiste post offensive, but really it shows that men and women react differently and both ways are good within context. Men are more principled and women care more about feelings. Principles are using rules and logic to govern life matters and behavior. Women usually behave to avoid hurting the feelings of another women, while facts, logic, consequences and motivation do not matter. Feelings are the sole determinant of action.
Men have the capacity to stand against the crowd and women are mostly pliable. This trait is useful for a good woman to fulfill her role on Team Her Man. Yet without a strong confident man to lead her, she will be mainly Team Woman. It is a woman’s nature to be a “feeling” creature and it is not a bad thing unless it is used out of the proper context and becomes excessive in a society. It was interesting to observe the offense many women took to the Team Woman post and how they could not see the principles behind it and the positive aspects. In fact in order to refute the Team Woman concept, women acted in a Team Woman manner based on their feelings.
It is also worthwhile to reflect on whether women are in fact only more immediately empathetic and men are more long-term empathetic, by applying of principles and considering implications and consequences. CL wrote on this topic on her post, Pleasing Your Man
Useful comments will build upon the truths rather than a knee-jerk refutation. For those choose to refute, please explain how it is acceptable to claim women have capacity in one area but it is unacceptable to claim men have a greater capacity in another area. What Principle is at work in this belief?
